What You Imagine
Fear no thing
word-drawn. The nightmare
is to live
unreal it spells virtual
in more than just name.

I'm participating in the #Trust30 challenge, an online writing/reflection initiative for which a prompt is posted daily. All of the prompts to date are here.
This poem, in Shadorma form, is my response to the ninth prompt from psychotherapist and author Mary Jaksch:
The other terror that scares us from self-trust is our consistency; a reverence for our past act or word, because the eyes of others have no other data for computing our orbit than our past acts, and we are loath to disappoint them. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Emerson says: "Always do what you are afraid to do." What is "too scary" to write about? Try doing it now.
